Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 8, No. 3 March 28, 1945
Last year it was decided that the University Shooting Club should be re-founded in miniature rifles. With this in view Stan Campbell was on the job early in the year and on the 8th the first meeting was held and a provisional committee elected.
We have had two range practices at the Wellington Boys' College and their help is being much appreciated. The first shoot was for the selection of a Tournament team. Results leave little to be asked for, and a good team has been selected for the Tournament. Geoff Streeter, Jim Lambourne, H. E. Hutchings, Gib. Bogle and John Ziman are putting up a good showing and we have high hopes.
The Tournament is to be held on a 100-yard range by courtesy of the combined Ngato-Onslow Miniature Rifle Club and is to be run under NZMRC regulations.
We can only pray for fair weather, no wind and an absence of the usual fogginess of vision which follows nights of Tournament dissipation.
